We can adjust the arrival time for a one hour session between 11:30am-3pm. Prior to arriving I will try to provide a list of available dogs to socialize with. On Saturdays there will be fewer dogs because of offsite adoption events. On Sundays most of the dogs are available. Let me know if you prefer bigger, smaller, mellow or active dogs. We will try to spend most of our time in the yard when it is not in use by potential adopters. There are other spaces where I can set up comfortable chairs for you to interact with the dogs. When all the dogs are present at the shelter there may be about 15 dogs available to play with. You can view our YouTube videos to familiarize yourself with the environment. In the event of inclement weather we can cancel or I can bring you indoors with dogs comfortable around cats. I will try to provide some garments to wear over your clothes so you do not get too dirty. There are also about 30 indoor cats you can play with. I prefer just 1 or 2 people in the group, but exceptions can be made. Children older than 10 are preferred, but must be accompanied by an adult. Please consider making a donation because all funds go directly to Dog n Kitty City. Search on YouTube "Dog n Kitty City Dallas"
I am usually at Dog n Kitty City every weekend volunteering about 200 hours per year. As a volunteer I want to create a better experience for visitors looking to adopt. I learn about the dogs and how they interact with adults, children, and other dogs. I post extra photos outside their kennels and on social media to show these interactions to potential adopters and to help other volunteers. I try to answer questions to first time dog adopters to make the experience as comfortable as possible.
We will be in the main yard of the shelter, outdoor enclosed spaces, indoors with cats or in kennels.
最多可供2位年滿10歲的旅人參加。 Children older than 10 are preferred because some dogs do not do well with small children.
Wear clothes and shoes that you are okay getting dirty
I will try to socialize the dogs and cats with you as much as possible. Sometimes they can be shy or get attached to me. Some dogs may jump so wear clothes and shoes that can get dirty. I will try to provide garments to wear over your clothes.
